October 2009 - SC Makeup Artistry at London Fashion Week... darling!

London Fashion Week celebrated 25 years of fashion between the 18th and 23rd Sep and I was privileged to have been asked to participate in hair and makeup for some of the many shows that took place during this hectic but organised mayhem of lipstick, powder and paint!

Sandra & Rachel WoodFashion Week itself is such a maelstrom of vitality, enthusiasm, talent and creativity and a real learning ground. My highlight of the week was assisting Rachel Wood who works in a variety of mediums including TV, pop promos, advertising, editorial, beauty and catwalk. Her clients have included Jared Leto, Alesha Dixon, Actress Suzie Amy & super models Erin O’Conner & Daisy Lowe. She also gives expert tips in national magazines and is the Celebrity Makeup Artist Spokesperson associated with Benefit Cosmetics. Additionally, she is also a very lovely person and every time I have been tutored by her I have learnt a great deal and she readily passes on her expertise.

Sandra & NinaI also had the pleasure of meeting one of my inspirations - Nina Butkovich-Budden who runs 'Nina's Hair Parlour' in London. Her salon is THE place in London to get amazing retro hair and makeup looks and her and her team did some amazing headpieces for the show I was at.

One of the looks that I was required to do for one of Rachel's shows was a flawless face and a perfect red lip and needed to be completed in super quick time!

flawless faceAnother part of being involved in Fashion Week is assisting anyone who needs help and i found myself helping clothe and unclothe models, fan them down when they got too hot as well as doing facial and hair touch ups backstage... and it was full on! The great thing was that all the make up assistants were allowed to keep the makeup that was used so I have now got some new additions to my kit! It was also a great opportunity to network with some very talented individuals and swap cards - here's to next year hopefully!


Makeup: Natural, flawless skin using MAC Face and body foundation/Benefit Erase Paste concealer/ Benefit Flage Powder/ Benefit's Georgia Blusher/ Benefit lipstick 'Flirt Alert' for the perfect red lip!
